Former Fiji 7s and Olympic Gold medal-winning Coach Ben Ryan says it’s a pleasure to see former Olympic Gold medal-winning captain Osea Kolinisau coaching the Fiji Airways Men’s 7s side.

In a Facebook post, Ryan says he always believed Kolinisau would excel as a coach, particularly for a team dear to him.

Ryan adds that it’s never nice to see someone lose their job, and that it was inappropriate for him to comment at that time.

He looks forward to witnessing Kolinisau’s journey unfold in the coming months, noting the smart decision by the FRU board to include Gareth Baber.

Meanwhile, the side left yesterday morning for the Hong Kong 7s which starts on Friday.
